@acechip 2017: It's in the '5 year plan', now close to 2 years old, and more or less being adhered-to (with some time lags in some cases: e.g., Abarth-launch) by FCA, not just in India but in Brazil, Europe, Italy, Turkey, China....and the US. I guess i trust their 'plan', or at least their commitment to it. In fact, I differ from that India-plan rather than being a proponent though I am ultimately a 'supporter'. In any case, it doesn't matter, since they'll do what they'll do. They make money in India now, and they will then too (in 2017-18). In the sense that mefeels the sub-10-lakh, mass market-segment-type cars (i.e., Punto in non-Abarth-form, and especially Linea) should be ditched in favour of exportable models above C segment, especially CUV-s/Suv-s like the in-plan-for-end-2016 'new Avventura' b-suv, and the 500X, retaining the emphasis on the Abarth-s, of course. Plus JEEP.
